Fedor left Falmouth for Albany

12 October at 10:30 GMT, skipper Fedor Konyukhov on board his Open 85 maxi yacht “Trading Network Alye Parusa” left friendly Falmouth and now in the middle of the English channel.

Weather on the start: cloudy, poor visibility, easterly breeze 0-5 knots, sea calm.

At 13-00 GMT the yacht passed Lizard Point at 0.5 miles and we had one more chance to see 105 ft mast before it disappears over the horizon.
